4 tablespoons olive oil
30g butter
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cubed
2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup corn kernels
4-6 large eggs
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan
freshly ground pepper

2. Heat half the remaining oil in the frying pan and pan-fry the peas and corn gently for about 1 minute, uncovered, until softened and lightly coloured. Add 1/2 cup water and cook further few minutes until tender and water has evaporated. Remove and set aside.

3. Lightly bear eggs in a large mixing bowl and add parmesan and pepper to taste. Fold in the prepared sweet potato, potatoes, corn and peas. Spoon ladles of mixture into a large heated heavy frying pan to which a little oil has been added to make small omelettes. We used egg rings to shape the mixture. Cook over moderate heat for 2 mins, carefully turn to cook the other side until light golden brown. Remove and allow to cool.

4. Slit the rolls in half, lightly butter and arrange salad greens on the base of the roll. Add 1-2 frittatini, depending on appetite. Season with salt and pepper.

Cherry Sabayon
Saturday, July 10, 2010
4 egg yolks
75gm sugar
100ml white wine
50ml cherry liquor

1. Mix all the above ingredients in pot and whisk until the mixture becomes fluffy.

2. Boil a pot of water.
3. Put the container with egg mixture on top of boiling water and whisk constantly till the sabayon is cooked.

This dessert is served with fresh orange slices and topped with cherry sabayon. Then the dessert is 'grilled' under the salamander. This will achieve a crusted finishing. Alternatively, it can be served with butterscotch sauce or good quality ice cream.
